Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 108718
Trying to log off crashes X
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:59:00 EDT
Description of problem:
When I choose to log out from Gnome and expect to get the confirmation
requester (the one with choices to reboot or shutdown the computer), gnome
instead seems to crash X entirely (which in my case makes init respawn X
and I'm back to the gdm greeter).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I'm running latest (i386 precompiled) Rawhide versions of all XFree86 and
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Choose to log out either from main menu or from a log out button on my panel
A confirmation requester with choices to logout/reboot/poweroff
The really strange with this is that it only happens if I have a second
screen configured in XF86Config and they screens are not in xinerama mode
(that is, I have one monitor at :0.0 and one at :0.1). I fail to see the
connection here, but I've tried quite some times and this is the case. Maybe the
fancy logout effect can't handle multiple screens?
I get the following in my .xsession-errors:
The program 'gnome-session' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.
(Details: serial 1471 error_code 8 request_code 1 minor_code 0)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
I have a dual-display as well, two distinct displays on one video
card, and I get the same symptoms and the same error when I try to log
out. I am running Fedora Core 1.
It has come to my knowledge that this is a bug in gnome-session that's
been fixed for 2.6.1. I guess I'll wait with closing it though 'til
2.6.1 is part of Fedora.
Closing this one since 2.7.4, which has this bug fixed, is now used in
